Cheating death is easy â€“ the hard part is knowing when not to.
From the moment an anonymous rescuer pulled him back from the brink of death, Dane Harper has vowed to live every second of his life to the fullest. Nothing would please him more than to share those stolen moments with the man who, literally, held his life in his hands. First, though, he has to find him. Then convince him itâ€™s safe to come out of his self-imposed shadows.
Even if it means playing dirty.
Court has no regrets about manipulating that one second of fate to save Daneâ€™s life, but having this accursed power to cheat death isnâ€™t the only thing darkening his lonely existence. The last thing he needs is an eternal optimist shining a cheery light on the dark, tortured corners of his past. Except now that Dane has found him, there.s no shaking himâ€¦and the longer Court basks in Daneâ€™s relentless warmth, the more he begins to believe that maybe, just maybe, happiness can at last be his.
Distracted by the devilish sparkle in Daneâ€™s eyes, Court begins to forget that there are those who would kill to control his stunning power. And that Dane is the perfect baitâ€¦
Beware â€“ features a man with absolutely no scruples about resorting to seduction and cheap tricks to get what he wants. Plus a skittish, supernaturally gifted paramedic whoâ€™s about to discover that itâ€™s okay to go along for the ride.

Also by Finn
Finn Marlowe is a paralegal by day and erotic (M/M) romance novelist by night. She believes daydreaming is a vastly underrated pastime and probably spends way too much time at it. Her kids no longer ask whatâ€™s wrong when they spy her staring off into space â€“ they just assume sheâ€™s mentally plotting a scene from her next novel and theyâ€™re probably right. Paranormal romance is her favorite genre to write, and her stories are usually on the dark side because she still believes in things that go bump in the night.
Finn calls British Columbia home and when sheâ€™s not enjoying the beautiful outdoors, sheâ€™s inside reading or resenting the fact her kids are better video game players than she is. If there were more hours in the day, sheâ€™d like to become a better artist, a greener gardener and learn to speak Spanish. Since she believes all dreams are possible if you donâ€™t give up on them, she expects to regain her video game hi-scores, naturally vanquish all garden pests and finally paint what lives inside her imagination. As for speaking Spanish, well, sheâ€™ll settle for learning to pronounce all the good curse words.
You can find out more about Finn and her books at her website, Goodreads, and her blog.
